The chemical nanotechnology is one of the special areas of nanotechnology. By varying the composition, shape, size or character of the surface, these nanoparticles can be shaped time and again into small building blocks, resulting in unprecedented scopes for material design. At this moment in time, the developments in the field of modern nanotechnology provide amazing success stories, such as the possibility for reconstructing surface structures for industrial materials that are demonstrated to us in nature.
The market demands modern paints that possess specified properties. Where deviations from set points occur, the cause must be investigated and the error must be remedied. Thus the author presents modern analytical techniques and their applications in the coatings industry that answer further complex questions. The information in this book can be used for performing failure analysis, production control and quality control, and also meet the requirements of modern high-level quality management.
It can act as a reference for explaining why a coating or production failure has occurred and at the same time provide inspiration for an analytical solution. An excellent combination of theory and practice for engineers and technicians engaged in coatings production, application and substrate production.

The term 'wood coatings' covers a broad range of products including stains, varnishes, paints and supporting ancillary products that may be used indoors or outdoors.
Techniques for coating wood go back many centuries but in recent decades there has been a move towards more environmentally-friendly materials, for example, the use of water-borne rather than solvent-borne chemicals. A major objective of Wood Coatings is to explain the underlying factors that influence selection, application and general operational issues. Basic information on the chemistry and technology of coatings is included for the benefit of students and laboratory technicians.
Additionally, the book includes individual chapters of interest to architects, specifiers, and industrial users. Seller Inventory EOD More information about this seller Contact this seller.
